Notable Birthdays and Deathiversaries Added to Calendar

We decided to add something new to our Calendar of Odd Dates: birthdays and deathiversaries.

Whose birthdays and deathiversaries did we add? Great question!

We’re talking heavyweights who have created some beloved classic horror movies (both producers, directors and writers), as well as beloved horror book authors.

But it’s not just horror icons. We’ve also added birthdays and deathiversaries for pioneers in the paranormal field. From people who sort of “invented” paranormal investigating in the first place, to people who took it to a whole new level on popular television shows.

Some are pictured in the collage above. Below is a list of the others.

Who We’ve Added (So Far)

  • Zak Bagans
  • Clive Barker
  • John Carpenter
  • Wes Craven
  • Josh Gates
  • Nick Groff
  • Jason Hawes
  • Hans Holzer
  • Alfred Hitchcock
  • Stephen King
  • Michael Myers
  • George Noory
  • Oren Peli
  • Edgar Allen Poe
  • Harry Price
  • Mary Shelley
  • M. Night Shyamalan
  • J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Guillermo del Toro
  • Jason Voorhees
  • James Wan
  • Ed Warren

Who Are We Missing?

We know we’re forgetting some of the greats. We need your help.

Who are some of your favorite horror writers? What about your favorite horror movies? Who made them?

And what about celebrity paranormal investigators? Who have we neglected to add?

Or feel free to leave a comment over in our Forums. We posed this same question in the Anything Goes section. Just look for the discussion titled: Whose birthday/deathiversary are we missing on our Calendar of Odd Dates?
